Nicholas K – Fall 2014 – Ready-to-Wear Collection – MBFW / NYFW
On February 6th, Nicholas K presented a crisp collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the Pavilion in Lincoln Center in New York. Raised spending time outdoors and with a love for the city, Nicholas and Christopher Kunz, the sister & brother team behind the label, have an established reputation for chic utilitarian style. The casual and sophisticated Fall 2014 collection was shown in organic mineral hues of grays, deep indigo blues, warm reds, browns and onyx. Inspiration sprung from the book Men At Sea by the French photographer Jean Gaumy.
Men were shown in utilitarian trousers and shorts with relaxed inseams constructed out of leathers and new-tech indigo twills. Plaid and tonal color-blocked button up shirts paired perfectly with the draped-necked cable knits and sleek outerwear. The women took to the runway with bobbed asymmetrical black hair, heavy kohl rimmed under-eyes and pointy dark blued nails. Silhouettes of draped silk jumpsuits, full skirts, and one shoulder crop tops made appearances along with billowing full legged trousers and tapered legs in leathers and plush textures. Glossy black Honeywell boots, rope accessories and fur headpieces capped off the crisp seafarer looks. The functionally-focused outerwear pieces in leathers, knit yarns and shearling have a wear-now, timeless appeal, and will be a great additions to existing wardrobes.
